Zhu Zhiwen, 'Male Susan Boyle' in China



The TV show I am a Big Star (我是大明星) calls him the “Male Susan Boyle,” but he’s most commonly known as “Overcoat Brother” (大衣哥) on account of his army surplus green jacket, appealing naiveté and impressive vocal talents.

To my mind, he is more like the Britain’s Got Talent sensation Paul Potts. Firstly, because he’s a man. Second, because he has a penchant for Chinese folk opera, rather than Andrew Lloyd Webber tunes.

Either way, farmer Zhu Zhiwen (朱之文) is an Internet hit, topping Baidu’s list of the people most searched.

The 42-year-old superhero country bumpkin from near Heze City in Shandong Province appeared on Shandong TV’s talent show I am a Big Star to sing the theme song from the hit 1990s TV show Romance of the Three Kingdoms, following up with the tune Travelers in Handcuffs, from the iconic 1980s film.

The audience gave him a standing ovation, but the judges gave him a hard time and questioned whether he really was a farmer — causing anger among netizens.
